This is a very good outside paint. Recommended by Consumer Report.

Do you guys use behr paints allot I have found that the interior paints are very low quality and take allot of coats just to get the correct color and my clients find that they cant clean the walls or all the paint will come of. Your thoughts?[/QUOTE]

This is the first 3 gallons I have used so can't comment, I seldom change colors. This paint is superior to anything I ever used.

I switched from working on used equipment to a remodel of bath room. The reason is I got a bid from home depo contractor and they wanted $30,000.

I will do part of the work myself and act as contrator for the rest. My goal is to keep it below $6000.
I took out a worthless jacuzzi and old shower.

How about this job, at 100F today. Owner said they work everyday. This house took two days $9000. He said his insurance is $800 for each job. The owner was running this business and his day job is a contactor for big homebuilder.

The local nursery has been selling this product to farmers for pastures. They have wanting us to test on grasses. This is the second application at 2 month intervals. I am nervous about application when it is 100F every day. Irrigation ran last night so I hitting it early. I have to use water with no colarine so I let water sit in tank. Do not want to kill the microbes.
